Chevy Woods, Fat Tony, Sam Lao and Goldyard To Perform at October's Red Bull Sound Select Show.
Later this month, the Red Bull squad itself will be pulling up the reins on its monthly Red Bull Sound Select and presenting an appropriately rock-solid hip-hop showcase featuring acts from all across the South and Northeast.
This latest installment of the series, which has been going on regionally since July of last year, will go down on Friday, October 24, at the Prophet Bar and will feature performances from Chevy Woods, Fat Tony, Sam Lao and Goldyard.
Woods, the night's headlining act, comes to town on the heels of his just-released “30 Deep” track. The track's his first formal release on his own terms, but Woods has long been bubbling; a member of Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang, this similar Pittsburgh-based rapper has been bubbling under for some time now. Check out the video for “30 Deep” below.
Similarly, Houston rap veteran Fat Tony, who joins Woods on the bill, has long been ready to blow, boasting features on tracks from the likes of A$AP Rocky, Das Racist, Antwon and other on his resume. Check out the video for his Despot- and Kool A.D.-featuring track “Hood Party” below.
Meanwhile, while Dallas darling Sam Lao only boasts an EP from last year to her name, her rise too seems imminent, given recent features with fellow locals Blue, The Misfit; Booty Fade and others. Check out the video for her debut single, “Pilgrims,” below.
Finally, rounding out the bill is rap trio Goldyard, which is setting itself apart from its predominantly trap-obsessed counterparts in Atlanta by placing an emphasis on alluring production aesthetics and confident storytelling-based lyricism.
Tickets to this showcase are $10 at the door, but can be cut down to $3 with an advanced RSVP here. It should be noted, however, that an RSVP does not guarantee entry; as with all Sound Select showcases, this one will be a first-come, first-served event until space runs out. That said, doors open at 8 p.m. on the 24th now. You're welcome, I suppose, to start lining up now.
